A bunch of Kirby from various eras represented in the upcoming books below. Early Silver Age with some classic monsters (and some Sgt. Fury covers), a few stories with the Hulk from a bit later, late Silver Age with the recent “Lost Adventure” packaged with some other stuff (I’m not sure of the page count of the other material, so no idea if they’ll be including the Kirby pencils, John Morrow article and reprint of #108), some 1970s stuff with the first half of the ETERNALS series and a few pages of later stuff used in the GALACTIC BOUNTY HUNTERS book, now in paperback.
